THE IMPACT OF INTEREST AND EXCHANGE RATES REGIMES ON THE PERFORMANCE OF THE NIGERIAN STOCK MARKET.
The financial systems of most developing economies have witnessed repressions largely manifested through indiscriminate distortion of financial prices-including interest and exchange rates- thereby suboptimising the developmental role of the capital market in resource mobilization and allocation for economic development as envisaged by Shaw
Nowadays, most countries have taken steps to liberalise their interest and exchange rates regimes as part of financial sector reforms in line with free market principles to engender overall economic development -Killick and Martin.
Nigeria administered interest and exchange rates from March 1970 to December 1986, did partial deregulation in January 1987,fully deregulated in August 1987,engaged in guided deregulation from January 1994 through 1995 to the largely liberalised economic policy thrust of the Obasanjo Administration.
This empirical study seeks to examine the signs and sizes of the impact which interest and exchange rates regimes have had on the performance of the capital market in the study period with respect to value, volume and market capitalization.
This study will rely on three models of multiple regression, modified by the error correcting co-integration theorem of Engle-Granger  and rendered with the Eviews package of econometrics analysis.
Inferences drawn from the study would be of academic, practical and public policy interests with room for further research by students of macroeconomics, et al.
